AC10 Custom

The AC10 was one of the first amplifiers to bear the VOX name and has long been adored for his ability to achieve rich, articulate tube tone at very manageable volumes. For this reason, the AC10 has become a highly coveted piece of VOX history since it's discontinuation in 1965. Now in 2015, VOX is proud to introduce the AC10C1, a modern take on this classic design. More portable than the AC15 and more powerful than the AC4, the AC10C1 features the classic Top Boost tone circuit that provides an array of classic and modern tones. Now equipped with reverb and a master volume, the AC10C1 is the perfect companion for the home, studio or stage.

Smart to bring this back. Portability is definitely the current trend. I think Kevin Shields was the last of his kind Wink

They never made the AC10Chinese1 before.

This is what the original AC10 was like:

I like it. Even the AC15 is too big and heavy and loud for a lot of uses, but the AC4 (even the 12" version which I have) is just not enough to cut it even for rehearsals if you have a moderately loud drummer. So something in the middle that gives you good tone and size makes sense. That said, I'm a little baffled that they chose 10" instead of the 12" they have in the similarly sized Night Train combo, but I suppose they know what they're doing.

That said, for about the same price, I think the Night Train combo's a much better deal, although I can totally see myself buying an AC10 down the line.
